As a homeowner, you truly understand the meaning behind the saying, “Your home is your HAVEN.” A dependable, quality roof is your first line of defense against the elements, and it protects an important investment–your home. We are proud to be among the Northshore’s best roofing companies based on our reputation and customer feedback. We are always there to answer questions and concerns, providing you with peace of mind.
Whether your roof has been damaged by a storm or is simply worn out, we can provide you with a new roof that will last for years to come. Asphalt shingles are the most popular roof covering for homes, largely because they are relatively inexpensive, are durable, and come in a wide variety of styles, colors, and textures. We strive to complete your roofing job with as little disruption as possible to you and your family. During your re-roofing project, we ensure that your house and landscaping will be properly protected. Going that extra mile is what we strive to do for each homeowner. (Check out a few testimonials to see what our satisfied customers have to say about our professional roofing services.) If anything doesn’t satisfy you, we will make it right, because we are here for you.
When you contact us for residential roof replacement, we will visit your home, assess your roof, and consult with you about what needs to be done. Once we understand the status of your roof and your goals, we will create a written estimate that will clearly show what we propose to do as well as the cost of the materials and labor. At Haven Exteriors, we genuinely care about our customers!
Roof Replacement Services
Roof replacement, or re-roofing your home, is an investment that has a big impact on the appearance, value, and function of your home. We service a wide variety of roofing materials and can handle all types of roof replacement, new roof installation, and re-roofing jobs.
How long has it been since your roof was replaced? Do you have shingles that are missing, curling, or cracking? Have you noticed a buildup of shingle granules at your downspouts? If it has been 10 years or more since you got a new roof or you’re noticing any of these danger signs, it might be time to move forward on a new roof before expensive damage is done to your home. Let us help you choose the right replacement roof for your home.
The need for new roofing is more obvious in some cases than others. Here are the top warning signs that your roof needs replacing:
- Roof is at least 15-20 years old
- Roof leaks in multiple places
- Missing, broken or torn shingles
- Shingles that have cupped or curled along their edges
- Roof looks old and worn
- "Balding" shingles that have lost their granules
Reasons to replace your storm-damaged roof
Storms can damage roofing in several ways. High winds sometimes blow roof shingles off the roof, creating obvious empty areas that need to be re-roofed. Wind pushing up on the bottom of the roof will loosen fasteners and break the roofing adhesion over time, which makes the roof susceptible to damage in the future. Wind causes tree branches or entire trees to come down on the roof, often damaging the roof structure as well as roof shingles.
Hail-damaged roofs may or may not be detected by the inexperienced inspector. The impact of hail can loosen, fracture, or remove granules from your asphalt shingles. The results of a hail storm will void the shingles manufacturer’s warranty, as they cannot warranty against “Acts of God” such as hail storms. Rather than make spot repairs following storm damage, it's often more cost effective to replace the roof. (Link to storm damage section to learn more.)
TYPES OF ROOFS
At Haven Exteriors, we specialize in several roofing materials, styles, and designs, offering homeowners options to meet any project and budget. We install, repair, and maintain the following roofing materials:
- Asphalt shingle
- Metal roofs
- Genuine slate
- Tile roofs
We are your local asphalt shingle expert serving the Northshore and many other areas of south Louisiana. Haven Exteriors uses the highest-quality shingle materials from top shingle manufacturers like Owens Corning, CertainTeed, Tamko, and more.
Asphalt shingles are manufactured with a fiberglass mat. Shingle varieties are saturated with asphalt to make them waterproof and fire-resistant. Ceramic granules are applied to the asphalt to help prevent damage and drying caused by exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
In the climate of south Louisiana, asphalt shingles typically have a lifespan of 15 to 20 years, depending largely upon proper attic ventilation, weather conditions, and preventive maintenance.
Benefits of asphalt shingle roofing include:
- Low maintenance -- When installed properly, asphalt shingles require little maintenance and can be easily repaired.
- Affordability -- The low material cost and life expectancy of asphalt shingles provide unmatched value.
- Versatility -- Asphalt shingles are available in a wide variety of styles and colors to match any home.
- Durable Protection -- Most asphalt fiberglass shingles have a Class A fire rating and wind resistance up to 130MPH.
These favorable characteristics make asphalt shingles one of the top choices for residential roofing in the Northshore area and surrounding regions. Whether you're looking for an inexpensive roof covering or stylish high-performance shingles, we offer asphalt shingles to meet your style and budget. The traditional 3-tab asphalt shingle has been around a long time and is becoming less commonly installed in Louisiana due to low wind resistance. Architectural, or dimensional, shingles provide value and strength in a genuine wood-shake look and high wind resistance (130+MPH). One example of shingles we offer is a TruDefinition Duration Shingle. Engineered with the innovated SureNail technology, these shingles have a 10-year algae resistance and can withstand winds up to 130 MPH. These lifetime warrantied shingles will provide a bold and lively contrast for any home.
Our roofing service experts can install any type of shingle on all kinds of roofing surfaces. We make sure you get the shingles you want on your roof. With our extensive shingle options, we’ll guide you on choosing the right shingles for your home.
Slate and Tile Roofing
Natural slate, concrete, and clay tile are some of most reliable roofing materials available. At Haven, we handle all kinds of slate and tile roofing installations.
Genuine slate roofs are extremely durable, yet elegant and iconic, as illustrated by the many historic homes and buildings in New Orleans with their original slate roofs intact.
Slate roof tiles are made from fine-grained rock and cut into uniform sections, which increases their durability and physical beauty. Genuine slate roofs are available in a number of colors such as reds, grays, blacks, purples and greens. Slate roofs add distinction and refinement to any home. Slate roofs offer the longest life span of all roofing materials. Slate roofs may last well over 100 years when properly installed and maintained. Of all the available roofing materials, genuine slate roofs are the most expensive roofs to install. However, they also provide the best protection and last the longest.
Tile roofs offer comparable benefits to slate, but come in a wider variety of colors, textures, shapes and sizes. Tiles can be glazed or unglazed and can be made out of concrete or clay.
Metal roofing may not be the first option many property owners consider when re-roofing or constructing a new building. However, metal roofing has unique characteristics compared to other roofing materials, and these differences are often associated with notable advantages in terms of performance and longevity.
A metal roof is a durable roofing option with little to no maintenance needed. An asphalt shingle roof can wear out in 12-20 years when exposed to severe weather like intense sunlight and humidity. In contrast, metal roofing stands up exceptionally well to weather extremes. It's a safe bet that a newly installed metal roof will last approximately 40-50 years.
The installed cost of a metal roof is subject to the same variables that determine any roofing installation: roof size, roof pitch, and complexity. That being said, you can expect a metal roof to cost two or three times as much as an asphalt shingle roof. A new metal roof can often be installed directly over an old asphalt shingle roof, and it will last two to three times longer. If you're interested in a metal roof for your home or property, call the experts at Haven Exteriors. We can provide you with installation and replacement services for metal roofs in Mandeville, Covington, and many other areas around the Northshore.
